ATLANTA FALCONS UPDATE: Falcons Gear Up For A Highly Anticipated 2024 Campaign, Top Insider Predicts A Trade For WR Justin Jefferson As Reports Sees A Reunion With Kirk Cousins In Atlanta As A Possibility.

The Falcons are preparing for the much awaited 2024 season.Arthur Blank replaced Arthur Smith as the quarterback after three 7–10 seasons and subpar quarterback play. Raheem Morris replaced Terry Fontenot in a single offseason and corrected the most crucial position in the sport.

The Falcons signed Kirk Cousins to a lucrative $180 million contract, presumably making him their best option as Michael Penix waits his turn behind the experienced quarterback.

It’s obvious what is expected: to win the NFC South. For Morris, the Falcons’ inaugural season without a division title would be considered a failure. That being said, this roster is not worthy of a Super Bowl.

Although Jimmy Lake’s defense could definitely use some improvement, especially in the secondary, adding another experienced edge pass rusher wouldn’t hurt. Hell, it might be necessary to add another experienced pass catcher to the mix with Darnell Mooney and Drake London.

Bleacher Report says you’re the best wide receiver in football after seeing your WR2. Bleacher Report examined potential deals the Vikings could make for standout wide receiver Justin Jefferson during OTAs.

According to Charley Walters of the St. Paul Pioneer Press, “there was buzz” that Minnesota was considering trading Justin Jefferson if they were successful in moving up from No. 11 to No. 5 in the draft in order to choose Malik Nabers.

The Vikings may not want to pay Jefferson, who is scheduled to reach the last year of his rookie deal and is slated to become the highest-paid receiver in the league. Bleacher Report speculates that Jefferson may end up back in Atlanta with Kirk Cousins.

Would you make this Justin Jefferson deal for the Falcons?

Falcons of Atlanta Get: Justin Jefferson, wide receiver

In Minnesota, Justin Jefferson and Kirk Cousins have had some of their greatest years together. When Jefferson earned Offensive Player of the Year in 2022 after posting 128 receptions, over 1,800 yards, and eight touchdowns, Cousins’ highest record as a starter was 13-3.

Drake London, who was once selected eighth overall, finished the previous season with a career-high 905 yards but has yet to reach 1,000 yards in a season. However, London’s subpar quarterback performance is mostly to blame for their lack of output.

Although Cousins and Jefferson already get along well, would the Falcons feel comfortable parting with three years of London—who can still emerge as a top wide receiver for the team—for a first-round pick in exchange for Justin Jefferson, who will have to pay about $30 million annually under his new contract?
